Dean Trantalis not only celebrated a birthday last week, the former Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner is going to try his hand at talk radio, hosting a weekly Sunday evening show which debuts October 30, the night Wilton Manors will host its signature Halloween event at Hagen Park. Disregard Dean’s ads, which read ‘WFLT.’ He does not use us to copy edit. It’s on WFTL 850 AM at 9 pm. Dean’s got some tough competition. On the same evening, the ‘Pink Church’, (the First Presbyterian in Pompano) will be hosting its ‘Halloween MONSTER CONCERT’ - Terrifying Toccatas & Haunting Harmonies- on the Great Pipe Organ at 7 pm.

Ben Cohen was a hit at the Fontainbleu Hotel last Saturday where he spoke at the National Task Force dinner in Miami.

The host committee members included Craig Smith, Rafael Rodriquez, Joe Guerrero, Don Brust, Heine Lund, Neilus Scannel and Robert Nuzzo.
We get many press releases and have to sift through which to publish, but from the Michigan based ‘Whirlpool Corporation’ it seems 8 of their employees have to their credit released ‘It Gets Better’ anti-bullying videos. Going to buy a washer or dryer soon? The company, which celebrates its 100th anniversary next month, has earned a 100 percent score on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Corporate Equality index for more than seven years.
